The ‘gol-i farang’ or ‘western rose’ pattern became increasingly popular in Persian weaving along with a growing fascination in the nineteenth century with European, particularly French, design. Here it is incorporated as an overall field design and appears almost as a perfect tessellation. The dark ground aids in creating a seemingly three-dimensional quality as the bundles of flowers appear to float on it. This is an elegant Persian rug incorporating a distinctly European aesthetic sensibility.
